And what would that broken hack gain us over the GNOME live image simply 
pulling in yelp explicitly if they aren't already doing that? I don't think 
making packages think a dependency is there when it actually isn't is the right 
way to solve problems like this, help won't be any more available with a dummy 
yelp than with none at all.

That would of course help, but not in the short term.
